Japanese CD reissue of The Nihilist Spasm Band's second album, originally released in 1978 on the Michael Snow'sMusic Gallery Editions label. Recorded live at the Toronto Music Gallery, February 4th 1978.The NSB was formed in 1965 by a group of people who enjoyed music and wanted to play in a band. There was no desire to learn to play traditional instruments so kazoos were bought and assorted noise makers modified or built from scratch. The band started playing regularly every Monday night in 1966 and has just carried on .The personal has stayed the same. John Boyle (artist) kazoo and drums, John Clement (MD) guitar and drums, Bill Exley (geezer/latinist) vocals, Murray Favro (artist) guitar and Art Pratten (pensioner/gentleman of leisure) Pratt-a-various and Waterpipe. Greg Curnoe (deceased), Hugh McIntyre (deceased) and Archie Leitch (permanently retired) play less often. The band currently plays most every Monday night at The Forest City Gallery, 258 Richmond St. just south of under pass in London, Ontario, Canada. The atmosphere is informal. We play for our own enjoyment but an audience is welcome. “Vol. 2” was originally out in 1978
